Father’s Day Weekend

A little late, but still ahead of the weekend…… Watanic is hosting their 2nd Warrior Shoot on Saturday with an Open Shoot for GSB on Sunday. This is the Charity Shoot that they host each year and helps to feed hundreds of needy NH citizens. Do what you can and try to pitch in a little something extra. They have several items to raffle off and as most of us know, they have one hell of a nice course for the archery enthusiast. See you there!

As a footnote, our Olympic Class trial has been received fairly well. We do regret our first suggestion of “shooting from the yellow stake”, but as with anything new… we need to be corrected. It should have read “White Stake”. The trial basis continues…..

Invitation to Olympic Recurve shooters

Some discussion has been had regarding a classification to accommodate shooters using equipment that could be described as Olympic Recurve. This is a trial invitation to evaluate the attendance and interest. If it were to become official, it would be in 2017 and involve the redefinition of FTLRU to broaden the competitive grouping. We will develop class guide as interest and participation demonstrates appropriate. Initially, we will group shooters under OLR, but that is subject to comment and change.

Basic Rule: Any longbow or recurve (stabilizers allowed), any arrow, moveable, non-magnified sight, finger release, Yellow Stake.

Not only did he love competing, he became a talented archery coach. He was not only a certified bow hunter education instructor, but achieved a level 2 JOAD (Junior archery Olympic development) instructor certification. Paul’s students not only loved his unique style of teaching, but loved his uplifting and inspiring personality. He also loved and adored his family and liked to spend time with them.
